Anybody have a toyota RC truck? I always see them on YouTube and the detail people have done to them is amazing! It's giving me ideas, like maybe a RC version of my truck when I'm done Very Happy

I've seen those too, they are pretty cool! I've been looking at the trail finder. Some people put a lot into these things making them look so real!

I will get my friend to post his information, he has a whole crew of toyotas - beadlocks, Exo skeletons, etc. I will cave and buy one if some of you guys do but these dudes have outings to trails they walk and don't touch the trucks... Winching and recovery straps like real time! Maybe they can buy toyotas and toontoys can go big time Very Happy

nope.. i just discovered that one as well.. it more resembled the high lift hilux, and ll the similar variations of that model from the last 20 years from tamiya.. i guess its super hard to get parts for the trail finder.. there have been people on waiting lists for certain things for months now... i wanted to see if i could find a complete body but its not that easy with those ones...
